Hispanic Linguistics: Current issues and new directions

Edited by Alfonso Morales-Front, Michael J. Ferreira, Ronald P. Leow and Cristina Sanz

Subjects Romance linguistics | Theoretical linguistics


TBLT is a growing research strand in the instructed second language acquisition (ISLA) literature. However, there is a paucity of studies on the role of individual differences (ID) such as task anxiety in L2 tasks (Baralt & Gurzynski-Weiss, 2011; Donate, 2021). Importantly, very few studies have… read more
Leow, Ronald P. and Melissa A. Bowles 2023 Chapter 5. Verbally mediated data: Concurrent/retrospective verbalizations via think-aloud protocols and stimulated recallsResearch Methods in the Study of L2 Writing Processes, Manchón, Rosa M. and Julio Roca de Larios (eds.), pp. 104–122 | Chapter
This chapter explores how think-alouds (TAs) and stimulated recalls (SRs) have been used to study cognitive processing, with a particular focus on writing processes. We describe the two types of verbal report and discuss the kinds of research questions that each is well-suited to answer, as well… read more
Leow, Ronald P., Rosa M. Manchón and Charlene Polio 2022 Chapter 13. Writing: Researching L2 writing as a site for learning in instructed settingsInstructed Second Language Acquisition Research Methods, Gurzynski-Weiss, Laura and YouJin Kim (eds.), pp. 305–328 | Chapter
This chapter first provides a brief overview of the current state of L2 writing research conducted in or relevant for L2 learning programs in three areas: (1) L2 learning processes and outcomes associated with instructional interventions via the manipulation of tasks; (2) L2 learning processes… read more
Given the current contextual focus on the cognitive processes employed during L2 written production in ISLA with a focus on L2 writing-to-learn in relation to written corrective feedback (WCF), this chapter provides (1) a description of the curricular context in which the writing-to-learn… read more
This chapter argues for the relevance of framing L2 writing research associated with language learning as part of a language curriculum within an instructed second language acquisition (ISLA) perspective. In line with current ISLA theorizing, we argue that the field should prioritize the conduct… read more

Leow, Ronald P., Luis Cerezo, Allison Caras and Gorky Cruz 2019 Chapter 8. CALL in ISLA: Promoting depth of processing of complex L2 Spanish “Para/Por” prepositionsDoing SLA Research with Implications for the Classroom: Reconciling methodological demands and pedagogical applicability, DeKeyser, Robert M. and Goretti Prieto Botana (eds.), pp. 155–178 | Chapter
Despite the current curricular push for hybridization in language programs, research on ISLA provides little guidance as to what and how syllabus content can be migrated online. Cerezo, Caras, and Leow (2016) recently showed that videogames using guided induction (GI) can successfully promote… read more
Leow, Ronald P. 2015 Implicit learning in SLA: Of processes and productsImplicit and Explicit Learning of Languages, Rebuschat, Patrick (ed.), pp. 47–68 | Article
To date no solid consensus on the role of implicit learning in the L2 learning process from a psycholinguistic perspective has emerged in the SLA field. This chapter seeks to situate this type of learning from a process versus product perspective within an SLA theoretical framework, disambiguate… read more
